The first edition of the Digital Days dedicated to digital printing on Flexible Packaging was held on the 29th and 30th of November at UTECO’s headquarters in Colognola ai Colli
Seeing the interest that the Sapphire presented at the DRUPA 2016 raised, able to print up to 300 m/min with water based inks and 400 m wide, Uteco agreed with Kodak on the launch of the new Sapphire EVO.
With a print width up to 622 mm, Sapphire EVO is the expansion of a web Medium Narrow size range and is the perfect combination of the quality of traditional print and flexibility in terms of variable data, short run lengths and minimum time to market. Sapphire EVO also provides the ability to insert groups of coating and lamination in line, in such a way as to ensure a high quality standard as part of the printing process for food packaging.
The knowledge and experience of Uteco also made it possible to integrate KODAK’S digital printing technology "Continuous InkJet", creating a cost-effective and unparalleled product in terms of productivity, making it the ideal solution for the increasingly demanding market.
The result is geared towards the continuation of this important partnership and the agreement for more in depth developments in the field of printing and laminating, with its search for up-to-date solutions and technological processes.
